Yes, you can do:

    mpg123 http://localhost:9000/stream.mp3

I have a "Squeezebox" in my living room and it works great.
On my Linux and Mac laptops I use the java-based "softsqueeze",
but there's also text-based players around.


The server is a bit heavy -- but you can download a tarball with most
if not all the dependencies.  Since my server is Debian I just use
their .deb:

    deb http://debian.slimdevices.com unstable main

and apt-get slimserver.
